Halloween is a great time to be in Billings, Montana. If you’re looking for a safe and fun Halloween event for the whole family in Billings, head on over to ZooMontana for “Boo at the Zoo” on October 28, 29 and 30th from 5-9pm.
Children from infants to pre-teens will enjoy this exciting Halloween event. They can trick-or-treat on the Kooky Treat Trail with over 20 decorated booths. Halloween crafts, games, cookie decorating and exhibits will also provide great entertainment. Only the truly brave dare to embark on the Spook Trail haunted by the Skyview High School Drama Club. Visitors will be able to vote for a best-decorated booth along the trail and meet new critters at the zoo.
ZooMontana members will be able to enter “Boo at the Zoo” an hour early and received discounted admission. Kids wearing costumes will be able to get in free, while adult admission without membership is only $6.25. Children without costumes can attend for $3.25. No coupons or free passes will be accepted during any night of “Boo at the Zoo.” Zoo Montana’s mission is to educate visitors about wildlife and conservation through enjoyable experiences.
In 2009, 8000 kids and 7000 adults attended “Boo at the Zoo,” which brought ZooMontana to full capacity. Last year, 36 businesses and community groups signed up to hand out candy at this event according to ZooMontana marketing director Daniel Lundquist. “I want to encourage businesses and non-profits to get involved with the zoo,” Lundquist said. “The zoo is part of the community, and it’s a place where people can come and just enjoy life.”
